by Jeff Bishop
Press Windows-= for a dialog with a listbox and edit box. Pick the type of conversion to do from the listbox. Input the source value in the edit box, then press Enter. The resulting value (rounded to two decimal places) is spoken and copied to the Windows clipboard.
Alternatively, press Alt-Windows-= to translate between two currencies via an API available at
Choose the source and result currencies from the listboxes. Enter the source numeric value in the edit box. Press Enter for the default, convert button. The result is copied to the clipboard and spoken.
The Original button sets the value to the word that had focus before the dialog was invoked. It remembers the currencies and value chosen the previous time.
The script calls a utility, ParMoney.exe, which is written in Perl. The package includes the source code in ParMoney.pl, and command-line syntax in ParMoney.txt. It may be necessary to initially run the utility at the command line to authorize it for Internet access with antivirus software.
About 200 currencies may be converted. Note that the free API is intended for personal rather than commercial use.
This global script requires GW Toolkit and Homer Shared Object.
